the latest on the wave of protests. joining us arwa damon and ben wedeman. arwa, what's going on in benghazi right now? >> reporter: well, the situation is pretty tense. just about every single libyan that we have been speaking to of course expressing their horror, their outrage about tuesday's attack, saying this most certainly is not indicative of how libyans themselves feel but also really wanting to see their own government begin to take control, begin to rein in these various militias. the government for its part now does believe, says it's 100% confident that tuesday's attack was carried out by extremist group or groups. they say they detained four people, not disclosing which group they were affiliated with but they were also say they go believe this attack was preplanned, intended to inflict damage to drive an irrepairable wedge between the libyans and americans. >> arwa, earlier you walked through what remains of that u.s. consulate in benghazi where ambassador stevens and the three other americans were killed in tuesday's attack and you sent us dramatic video. walk us through what
governor romney looked bad responding to the tragedy in benghazi, he seemed like he was too political and too opportunistic. it could be here that the president was a little too cool. i don't think in his defense for a minute he would say that the murder of an ambassador and other american personnel, much less all the other folks who have died in that region, is just a bump in the road. i think what he's trying to do is show everybody that we're on this, the united states is doing well and you know, i think that's a kind of typical no drama obama response. >> alex, is that what it is, the cool head of the president? >> i think there's something to that, but i think there's also a little more, and that is that this president's great strength is his intellect. he lives inside his head and his ideas. and part of it is he doesn't really feel your pain like paul's former boss, bill clinton, but he can memorize a study about it, you know. people are distant from this president. there's a certain sense of arrogance to this white house that they're just detached from it and i think that's a v
, on the killing of ambassador christopher stevens and three others in benghazi, libya on 9/11, on what the state department and others may have known about the security situation the days and weeks leading up to their killing, on what leading members of the government have said about their circumstances of the tragedy and whether their statements have lacked clarity or transparency, and of course, on who killed these four dedicated americans. that's where we've always believed the focus should be. however, because cnn discovered ambassador stevens' seven-page journal in what remains of the consulate in benghazi three days after the attack and because it became one source for some of our reporting, questions about the use and handling of that journal have been raised, as you probably heard. as you probably heard this weekend, the u.s. state department spokesman blasted cnn, calling the network's behavior quote, disgusting and our handling of the journal quote, indefensible. now, no one likes to be called disgusting, particularly by a spokesperson for the united states state department. but we do
were ripped down and in egypt -- i'm sorry, in benghazi, we had an ambassador and three other people killed, his body dragged through the streets after it's reported in "the washington times," he was sodomized before he was killed. this wasn't supposed to happen under president obam a. he went to corow, world peace was going to break out as he went on this apology tour and this is part of his speech in cairo in 2009. >> i am grateful for your hospitality and the hospitality of the people of egypt. and i am also proud to carry with me the good will of the american people in a greeting of peace from muslim communities in my country.

.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. at 10:20 tuesday night before details of the attack were clear, governor mitt romney issued a statement accusing the president of apologizing for american values. it said "it's disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn atax on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who wage the attacks." just after midnight wednesday, obama's campaign responded, accusing romney of taking a political swipe during the crisis, saying "we are shocked that at a time when the united states of america is confronting the tragic death of one. our diplomatic officers in libya, governor romney would choose to launch a political attack." at 6:21 a.m., cnn reported that u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens was killed and learned three other americans had also been killed. later that morning, romney issued his own timeline of events, stating the embassy in cairo put out a statement after their grounds had been breached. romney indicated that the u.s. apologized for the film after the attack, which is not the case. in fact, the embassy stat
, militants attacked the u.s. consul in benghazi and killed the ambassador and three american men close to him. >>> want to talk to general wesley clarke, general, thank you for joining us. can u.s. forces help keep these consulates and embassies safer? >> certainly they can. first of all, forces around the consulates can provide direct defense. they can also provide deterrents and simply the word that we're putting additional forces in there has to be heard by people. the forces offshore can provide reinforcements, provide additional intelligence and a lot going on behind the scenes, you can be sure of that. our intelligence agencies, our pounding the beat, looking for the source of the attacks, during the after action review as to what happened and why. looking to find ways to prevent and get early warning of future attacks there, is a lot going on that we're not seeing. >> general, some of these countries like yemen and sudan say they don't want u.s. troops sent there. hodo military leaders handle that? can the pentagon send troops to nonhostile places where they aren't wanted? >> well, i t
on the american embassy in benghazi, libya, the ambassador christopher stevens was murdered. do you condemn the attacking which caused his murder? >> translator: fundamentally, first of all, any action that is provocative offends the religious thoughts and feelings of any people we condemn. likewise, we condemn any type of extremism. of course, what took place was ugly, offending the holy prophet is quite ugly. this has very little or nothing to do with freedom and freedom of speech. this is the weakness and the abuse of freedom. and in many places it is a crime. it shouldn't take place, and i do hope that they will come in which politicians will not seek to offend those whom otherses hold holy or with sanctities. but we also believe that this must also be resolved in a humane atmosphere, in a participatory environment and we do not like anybody losing their lives or being killed in wri. >> there are protesters all over the middle east now threatening the staff of american embassies, threatening to kill them, behead them. do you think they should stop? >> translator: you see, i cannot deter
of the benghazi incident in which he was deemed by most people, including many on his own side to have jumped in with a critical statement of the president. really without knowing a the facts and turning -- when most people thought that was the wrong thing to be doing as an american politician at that time. >> well, absolutely. when our country's attacked in any way, shape or form, we need to pull together, we need to come together, not separate at that point. i mean, you want what i would do over there? i would do what the pinnacle of the republican party, the hero, whatever modern day ronald reagan did. do you recall back in the '80s when the barracks in lebanon was hit, did ronald reagan go to war? no, he got us the hell out of there. and that's where i stand on this. if these people don't want us over there, let's close our embassies, i stand with ron paul, let's get rid of foreign aid altogether. because as ron paul put it, the definition of foreign aid, that's taking from america's poor and giving it to another country's rich. >> hang on. hang on, jesse. >> wait a minute. >> you wait a
